answer worried a grandson may have been arrested. >> i thought maybe it's a family member in trouble. >> so she listened to the recording. >> it gave you two options. number one is will you accept this collect call and you will also be recorded. >> she googled the phone number calling her and found complaints saying it was a scam. sheriff's departments are warning this scam which has targeted land line phones are hitting cell phones too. inmates dial numbers hoping to get someone to approve a collect call. if you do, they hang up and bill their long distance prison calls to your phone number. virginia has received similar calls. >> i had people calling me as early as 8:00 in the morning until 11:00 at night. >> the only solution is to ask your provider to block that number or block all collect calls. >> sometimes the automated caller asks you to press1 or 2
to take the call. either way you will run up a huge collect call phone bill. if you are worried it's a family member, hang up and call family members. chances are they will be home safe. don't waste your money. >> didn't catch that? no problem. you can find that story and all of the reporting on go to the money tab under the don't waste your money section. >> now, most accurate forecast. >> right into baltimore weather. how the day finished down in dallas where the orioles are dog well tonight. a few -- are doing well tonight. a few additional clouds. temperatures are dropping like a rock out there. so the ball not carrying as well in the late part of the game that we hope will be great news for the orioles. current conditions back here. 67 at the airport.
winds are southwest. and they will certainly bring a different type of temperature in here. take a look at the numbers. mid 60s, a pleasant evening. nice mild south breeze that continues to blow in across maryland. but as we look to the north and west, look at these temperatures. low mid 40s out here in. st. louis detroit. this is the air mass that is moving towards us. and really make its presence felt by sunday night. even beginning tomorrow night, you are going to start to feel the change. chances for rain, you bet. two reasons. that boundary moving in . spark showers ahead of it. don't look for a lot of rain tomorrow afternoon. then, as we go from saturday into sunday, we've got a little bit of an area moisture along the coast. the carolina coast that could help generate showers through the day on sunday. so sunday we're talking temperatures struggling to get out of the 40s and low 50s.
plus rain showers and ugly day. with luck as the orioles come back to play that game on sunday night with the showers will be done by sunday night. not through the day. you may have in texas right now weather a nonissue for the big game. there is a boundary here in north texas not impacting the latter part of the texas/orioles game. there is cooler air blowing into the stadium. changing weather here too. you see that frontal boundary bringing rain to indiana and ohio. that headed toward maryland toward the middle part of the weekend. this is a little overstated. more of a cool blast. this is not frigid air. it's a lot cooler than we've seen. numbers on sunday, again, struggling to get out of the upper 40s. we'll probably get to the low 50s for an hour or two or three sunday afternoon. chilly night for baseball. 75 on saturday. sunny and breezy with
falling temperatures. saturday night 48. breezy and cool. a chance for shower s. really through most of the day on sunday. just 52 degrees. are you kidding me? a huge change from 80 degree air on friday. 30 degree cool off. 52 cooler sunday. your columbus day forecast not bad. dry it out, 60 degrees. sunshine. the weekend on the whole not so bad. other than sunday. and if we continue to see those gains next week, the weather looks pretty good for those games. monday, tuesday, wednesday back close to 70. sunday, really the ugly day. don't forget about dog fest on saturday. got to check out the pups. >> always a good time. thanks. still 3"n coming up, an amazing night. we'll continue this. live picture. look at those guys . they want this
